Randy 43 :

hi ,that is the icemaker that has many upgrades , have you done any diagnostic tests?

Customer:

like what diagnostics?

Randy 43 :

there are some diagnostics that can be done , is the icemaker on in the display ? if so press and hold the 2 two up arrows on the freezer and fridge settings ..it should go into diagnostics ..let me know

Randy 43 :

hold for 3-5 secs

Customer:

I wont be at the fridge till tomorrow :-( can you explain some procedures to follow and what to expect from them ??

Randy 43 :

its a little hard unless you are there , can you contact me tomorrow and we can go thru the diagnostics?

Customer:

Randy 43 :

ill be online around 11:00 am tomorrow , too late for you?

Customer:

Randy 43 :

Randy 43 :

Customer:

ok do I just look for you. Randy or just randomly ask a question ? not sure how to directly contact you ?

Randy 43 :

just respond to this same question ,itll show up on my screen

Customer:

ok thanks for your help

Randy 43 :

ok ,talk to you later

Customer:

do you feel that we can pinpoint the ice maker issue even with all the upgrades for it ?

Randy 43 :

truthfully that icemaker had a LOT of issues ,with the various tests ,it can pinpoint which board version it has ,if the fan is working?, if the motor is stripped?,,heater function ..it was a problem ,im not going to lie ..it isnt a very good icemaker

Customer:

is there a certain model # XXXXX this whole ice maker or does it just come in parts ?

Randy 43 :

it comes in parts only , that is the problem , it is part of the fridge section , they now make a totally different icemaker that can be changed as a whole unit , just because of the issues the original icemaker had

Customer:

cant I just pick up that ice maker to replace the existing one with problems or was it not made to be interchangeable ?

Randy 43 :

not on your model , it is not interchangeable ,,it only has upgrade parts ,that is why electrolux went with a completely new style icemaker that is interchangeable

Customer:

ok thanks this has been very helpful and I will look for you tomorrow around 11;00

Randy 43 :

ok .talk tomorrow
